East African drought continues to deepen
CWS has expanded emergency food distributions and is developing water sources in drought-affected areas of Kenya's Rift Valley and Eastern provinces.

Resettling 5,318 refugees in FY 2011
"The refugees we resettled will have a chance at life," notes Erol Kekic, Director of the CWS Immigration and Refugee Program.  "We can be proud of that."

'It’s good to be self-reliant'
In the community of Mayombe in northern Haiti, members of the CWS-supported “Hand in Hand” co-op are creating their own stable food supply.

Facing similar struggles, CWS brings together indigenous people
CWS is helping the indigenous people of the Gran Chaco secure legal title to their ancestral territory and to use the land in ways that are economically, socially and culturally sustainable.

CWS stands up for Dominicans
For Dominicans of Haitian descent, a retroactive law has essentially ended their Dominican citizenship.  And with it, their right to vote, get jobs, access medical care or pursue an education.
